NEW YORK CITY (WFLA) — The Silence Breakers were just picked to be the 2017 Person of the Year for TIME Magazine.
They sparked the #MeToo movement that’s changed workplaces in industries across the world.
The social media outcry took off last month when a slew of high-profile men were publicly accused of sexual misconduct, starting with famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2017 was revealed Wednesday morning on the “Today” show.
“This is the fastest moving social change we’ve seen in decades,” Time editor in chief Edward Felsenthal said on the show.
